Thees & Thys & Thous in prayer
#11
Since I am a member of the Ordinariate in the U.S., I prefer hieratic. Our liturgy is in hieratic English. For mental prayer, I do both, but tend towards hieratic. I also pray in Latin - I don't know Latin, but if I have a prayer text in front of me with both Latin and English translation, I usually pray the Latin.

As far as I know, the Greek which was (and is) used in Liturgy in the Eastern Churches (and was used early on in the West), as well as the Latin which was (and is) used in Liturgy in the Western Church, are hieratic or sacral forms of those languages. It is only recently that you get the push for a vernacular which is not hieratic or sacral.
